Google presently offers Gmail users 2.82GB of free storage with their account. Picasa users get 1GB of storage.
Now the company is offering up to 250GB of storage for a fee. The storage can be applied against Gmail and Picasa at the moment, and the company plans to make the extra storage count against its other services (Including Docs & Spreadsheets) in future.
Plans start at US$20 per year for 6GB of space, rising to $500 per year for 250GB of online storage.
